FLORIDA: Betsy DeVos To Visit Parkland Today

The Miami Herald reports:

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will get another high-profile visitor in the wake of the shootings three weeks ago that left 14 students and three faculty members dead and many more injured. U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is scheduled to visit the Parkland school Wednesday morning and meet with students and teachers.

DeVos could get an earful. Many students and their families have become nationwide activists in the #NeverAgain movement, calling for increased gun regulation and other measures to prevent another mass shooting at a school. Stoneman Douglas seniors Cameron Kasky and David Hogg were live on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday night in a 10-minute interview segment with the host.

The students are also organizing a March 24 rally in Washington and in communities across the country — March For Our Lives — to call for a ban on semiautomatic rifles like the AR-15 used in the Parkland shooting, among other gun-control measures.

The GoFundMe for the march has raised over $3M.
